Always an amazing feat of engineering when a mosque chamber is created to use the walls to echo to a large mass audience. Considering when this mosque was completed, it is exceptionally clear and is interior in gorgeous. Now as busy as other mosques to visit but an important and interesting piece of Egyptian history.
Beautiful and very peaceful. It was our first site as soon as we landed in Cairo. Not far away from the airport as well. It is extremely pretty site, take your time exploring in.
Beautiful mosque in the Turkish style, though the stained glass windows are apparently in the French style. I loved the stunning Arabic calligraphy inscriptions and woodwork on the ceiling inside the mosque.
This is probably the most impressive mosque in all of Cairo. It is opulent with many exquisite details in the the architecture. Definitely worth seeing.
A not-to-be-missed mosque in Cairo. Even if you have to visit just one mosque, this one has to be it. It is huge and the interiors are full of artistic magnificence. Be sure to wear covered clothing and you have to remove shoes before entering. The views from top are another reason to go there.
